The creation of wine can be traced back for thousands of years. While the ancient Greeks included wine to inspire conversation at formal symposiums, modern society includes wine for events ranging from daily life to annual celebrations.
One popular annual celebration that demonstrates the magic of the taste of wine to be enhanced by the taste of a specific food is the 22nd Annual Rodney Strong Wine and Chocolate Fantasy on February 5, 2011. Single Vineyard Cabernets, True Gentleman’s Port, and other Rodney Strong Vineyards exclusive wines will be presented with delicious chocolate creations from over a dozen chocolatiers. Guests will enjoy the sumptuous treats from Sonoma Chocolatiers, Bert’s Desserts, Peters’ Chocolates, Pam’s Candy Shop, Sift: A Cupcakery, and more.
The Wine and Chocolate Fantasy takes place in Rodney Strong Vineyards' barrel room. The barrel room will be specially decorated in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. Make sure to wear your most comfortable dancing shoes – Dgiin, the featured band, will be playing live French-Gypsy-Funk.
This is one event guests look forward to each year. The combination of wine, chocolate, and live music creates a playful, friendly atmosphere. Visitors can truly drop their defenses while meeting new people who appreciate the fun-filled fantasy of chocolate and wine.
Valentine’s Day Tip: Follow your visit to Rodney Strong Vineyards' Wine and Chocolate Fantasy event with a dinner reservation at any of Sonoma County’s local restaurants. Surprise your sweetheart by arranging for Pure Luxury Transportation to begin your Valentine’s Day celebration by meeting you at the location most convenient for you. Your private chauffeur will make sure both of you arrive on time wherever you need to be.
